    If a student applies for extra time on the SAT or ACT because of learning disabilities -- does that application in itself become a medical condition that may preclude applying for ROTC? We know that have an IEP or 504 plan after a certain age, or the taking of ADD meds past a certain age, can be a disqualifying medical condition. Is applying to SAT and/or ACT seen in a similar light? This is a serious question, posted by a parent. I have a daughter at USAFA, so we are familiar with DODMERB and medical issues -- this question applies to our younger child who is interested in ROTC.

    I don't believe that any of the SA's or ROTC will accept SAT or ACT scores with an extended time accommodation.

    You are correct. SAT/ACT exams with an accommodation of extra test time are not accepted.
